"I believe the momentum we have is not reversible," said Jack Keane, a retired Army vice chief of staff who helped develop the Iraq strategy adopted by President Bush in January 2007.That's what I get for naming something a "quote of the day" as early as I did.
I supppose since the earlier quote wasn't really today's news...
Whatever. Here are a few more from the same story.
There will be "significant reductions in 2009 whoever becomes president," said Keane, who regularly consults with Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Iraq.Obama has always supported Oceana's war with Eurasia, you see.
Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki echoed Keane's optimism Saturday by declaring that "we defeated" the terrorists in Iraq. U.S. commanders remain cautious.
Army Lt. Gen. Lloyd Austin, the No. 2 commander in Iraq, said recently that "our progress is fragile, and we continue to work to make this progress irreversible."
Such encouraging reports could benefit both presidential candidates. Republican John McCain has been a major supporter of Bush's escalation of U.S. forces in Iraq. Democratic candidate Barack Obama said he wants to withdraw all U.S. troops from Iraq in 16 months, although he said any pullout would be determined by conditions there.
Might have to make room on the old bandwagon (or UH60, as the case may be).
Yes, but does the imagery conjured via threw him under the bus work with a UH-60??

Sounds a bit cruel, assuming it was in flight. ( But I think I'll use it. ;) )
